Well I took the plunge, first I painted the 417 in dark earth and thought it didn't look too bad, but then I got niggled and thought what the hell, lets go for a Multicam / MTP paint job.
Bought all humbrol paint to do the work and its turned out really nice. I found the best way to get the right base coat was to leave the dark earth alone and the put a mist coat of olive green over it - et voila - light green base coat. the rest is just hand cut stencils held just of the gun and give a quick distance blast.
Really liking it.... just need a new hop to try and get the range up a little bit and throw - .30g stingers at the cheating bastards out there.
